I think this is a fair request. I assume you mean for the main tarball  
on SF.

We create an MD5SUM for the snapshot at http://nagiosplug.sourceforge.net/snapshot/ 
. Is this what you mean?

If so, we can add to the release process to create an MD5SUM for the  
tarball that is put on SF. The file uploads on SF are access  
controlled, so it can only be done by members of the team, so there's  
a trust on the team which you have to trust anyway.
